DOB: 6 November 1989
As a young and not so wise man – I am curious to discover, live and love all things incredible. Such things find themselves in obscure places with crazy people at unsuspecting times. If I may be cliché, “Seize the moment” is a philosophy that resonates well with my perspective on life. In 2014 I discovered the merger of absolute adventure with a purpose in the form of the Mongolian Charity Rally. Needless to say this opened my eyes and heart to the world and so began a thirst to continue exploring whilst working towards a greater cause along the way. Handsome Rob (See Profile) is my trusty companion throughout these adventures with whom we started a blog on our adventures (shakenbakeadventures.wordpress.com), he is also responsible for bringing us to the MAD2Run Foundation.
I am completely excited to be participating in the MAD2Run 2016 event. The road ahead is indeed a long one both figuratively and literally – but the energy within the team has been overwhelming and any challenges in our path will be crushed. Having had the privilege of a tertiary education, I am well aware of its ability to self-empower and ultimately make a difference not only to oneself, but one’s family, country, continent and world. Knowledge is power – and its effect is exponential. South Africa is the most amazing country with potential to be first world – but the sustainability of this vision must be fuelled by an educated nation. This I feel passionately about and I will happily run from Joburg to Cape Town to make this difference.
1 500km … Let’s do this!
